Thanks for that. I can confirm that the hood supports fit and work beautifully.I thought it'd be good to have a reference thread of Mazda parts and accessories that have been confirmed to fit the 124.
To start, I can confirm that the Mazda's accessory wheel lock nuts fit.
There is no pre-wired connection for the mirror under the header. You have to remove both sets of A pillar trim and 6 torx bolts to remove the header trim. I bought a Mazda OEM mirror install kit on Ebay and a ATM fuse tap at Autozone and ran the wires in the install kit down to the fuse box in the left foot well.Was the mating connector behind the trim (I see the slot for the mirror harness) and does it all have to be removed to plug it in?
Because after installation the tolerances are so tight that you have to put much more force to close the door(or it will bump). Sincerely, using the car in a road/leisure environment and not for racing, the standard bushings are good enough.can you expound on why? i was looking at getting them and thought if there was a negative i might want to know before hand.
i do specifically remember reading on one of the sites that sells them they say it the door is tight to close then you can lightly sand them to make the not so hard to close. as the cars age and break in there is expected to be some additional play shifting in the car. as i hope i will be keeping this car for a good while i was thinking of adding things that stiffen the car like cross braces and these bushings. what did you do with the bushings?Because after installation the tolerances are so tight that you have to put much more force to close the door(or it will bump).

Good looking piece but not a plug and play...it requires a little finesse...The Beatrush front strut tower brace fits great, but you have to modify the two brackets they include that will be used to hold the coolant tank. The included pan headed studs are too short so I cut the welds that hold the stud to the bracket and sourced new M6 x 1 bolts from Lowes. Not 100% bolt on but an easy mod is all it takes to make it work.
